's happening in the political world and the economy which we're in. the situation with the gun violence is very close to home, because i do enjoy -- even though i'm 60, i still go out and hunt and shoot a deer and kill a turkey to eat. host: thank you very much. by the way, the full presentation by the president yesterday, you can certainly watch atlanta cspan.org. good morning, what kind of work do you do? caller: i'm in the mental health field. each level of the patients have had different mental health issues. and i have really been waiting for this issue to come up, because that's what concerns me the most. i have worked with people that have multiple personalities. we have been scared to death. they pick beds up. they have tremendous anger in there. i don't think they get the proper care that they need. and after a while, they're released and that is something that i'm really concerned with. it's not about who is able to get a gun, who is able to have a gun. that's not the issue right here. the issue is that we have to start dealing with people with mental health issues. i have worked in a
their leaders in washington and, worse, they think those leaders are now hurting the economy. as president obama prepares to be sworn in for a second term our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows a lagging economy and partisan battles are sa sapping the public confidence replacing the buoyant mood of four years ago with more pessimism now about the future of the country even as the economy slowly recovers. the president remains personally in a strong political position. his job approval rating is at a steady 52% about where it was last month and a higher rating than he has had through most of his first term. while the public likes the president personally a full 74% have responded and told us they like obama, he still hasn't won them over on his policies. and on his policy goals. the public is split. 49% disapproving of his overall policy goals. 47% approving. the president does get his best marks for being easy going and likeable having the ability to handle a crisis and understanding average people but he has low marks on changing business as usual in washington. working effectively w

[applause] >> i forgot to mention, the book is called america's poor and the great recession. ideas about what democrats and republicans can agree on. speaker gingrich. >> thank you for assembling an amazing group and a fascinating evening. i hope everybody found it as intriguing as i did. it is clear our institutions and poverty -- institutions are not working. there is a need to rethink from the ground up and use all of the various technologies. then have a conference at the end and then give a major speak. i think we do not have the solutions in
having different task force for the visa according to the economy? >> there has to be away -- a lot of our laws date back to the 1950's. some to the 1960's. there has to be a way of bringing it up to date. those are things that will have to be negotiated. all be just say it can't managed by a central system in washington where washington decides how many nurses we need, how many farm workers. business will have to play a role and business will have to be the determining factor in order to make this work in a practical way. >> think for a man and that 10,000 people a day retire in the united states, seven days a week. we are a nation with unemployment and with a shortage of people that go to work at specific jobs. the secretary's point is on target. if you try to do this with an overseer of exactly how many left-handed nurses and right- handed carpenters get into the added states, we are doing the wrong thing. we need to do it on demand. if we have an extraordinary need to be competitive, and many, because of the price of energy and the fact the country is probably will have and have
the count kraoe which has not occurred. we are more divided than before. and get the economy on a surround recovery to get out of a recession that we've had. the pieces of business hangover the president. he has proven that you can get reelected in a weak economy, which a lot of people, myself included thought would be more tkeufpbt it turned out t difficult it turned out to be. it was a narrow election. he has that ahead of him. not to mention the things that haunt a second term which none of us can imagine today. >> you can see former president clinton and secretary of state clinton. who is going to be testifying before congress in a less friendly atmosphere later this week. i was reading obama's first inaugural address today, because i thought, you know, let's get a sense of what it is that he said four years ago. i want to read you two lines. on this day we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and falls promises the recriminations and warn out doug mas that for far too long have strangled our politics. that is an incomplete at best. not all the president's fault but also cou
in part, difference to the sluggish economy and the challenges that the nation faces and the crowds will be smaller. george h.w. bush and george w. bush won't be here. there have been pres debts where presidents in the past haven't made it. george h.w. bush just got out hospital, which is why they won't be here. mitt romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with pers
administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop to get our economy in great shape and move toward a balanced bump started off with three phases. started with president bush's actions, the first president bush, in terms of taxation, before president clinton took office. then the actions the president took in '94 and then in '97. well, we think there's a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt, the gdp, our deficit to gdp, down around 3%, which is the basis of which all economists left, right, center, agree, are the areas which we really can begin to grow as a country. and also my grandfather used to say, with the grace of god and good will of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling, that we may very well be able to meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over ten years, and in the long-term deficit and put us on that path. but i didn't come here to talk about any of those important subjects today because, as important as they all are, today we have a
for the markets and the economy? >> i hope so. if what the republicans are talking about is let's have this debt ceiling skirmish every quarter, every three months, nobody is going to like that, especially the markets, and for very good reason. if what they're say something we're not going to play debt ceiling leverage anymore, which has obviously been the president's position, that's good. my feeling is it's probably the latter. i think there are enough kind of economic grown-ups in the room to really control the folks who have threatened to use that kind of leverage. >> but the senate has not had a budget resolution pass through the senate in, what is it, four years now? >> april, 2009. >> that feels to me pretty shameful frankly. i don't know the politics and i'm not exactly sure why that's the case, but isn't that a critical step in bridging the gap and making progress on these issues where you can not go to these sort of extra legal things like using the debt ceiling as leverage, but you can use the process as it is intended to be used. >> i agree, and it's an interesting quid pro quo for t
much for that election day euphoria... >> the economy has now lost 650,000 jobs just in the past three months... >> all eyes are now on barack obama to turn it around... >> narrator: the cascade of bad news began with the economy. >> fear swept through the markets... >> he had to start thinking about this the day after he was elected. >> this was the most eventful and consequential presidential transition in american history. >> we were all worried about what we were seeing. we knew that the credit system was pretty quickly headed towards something that looked a lot like seizure. >> narrator: the president-elect was told that in the two months since lehman brothers crashed, the panic on wall street had only gotten worse. >> what we were facing was something that, really, he had never contemplated, never experienced. >> narrator: unemploymenwas nearly seven percent and climbing. the stock market was down more than 6,000 points. >> there was a growing sense of calamity. this could be the most climactic economic crisis in all of american history, that we were that close to a complete melt
: that is interesting. the president campaigned keeping the economy going. improving it. spreading the benefits to the middle class. immigration reform and energy reform. then newtown happened and that wasn't part of his agenda for the second term. then newtown happened and by all signs the president was deeply and personally moved. one of the reasons i suspect you can see there just to, standing to the left of them the fatherf two young daughters and the idea of these 20 young schoolchildren having been unabouted down i'm sure hit him very bern p personally. he decided to make that a huge issue in this campaign or rather in his second administration. it will be interesting to see. one of the things people say you don't want to overload the agenda but in addition everything he wants to do and obviously the debt and deficit he will have several battles with congress over that but gun control, he will try to take advantage newtown has happened and perhaps caused a tippingpoint in public attitudes and he will push that very aggressively. shepard: senator chuck schumer, the chairman of joint congr
economy that provides equal opportunities for all americans with no barriers born of bigotry or discrimination. putting america back to work means putting all americans back to work. ending inflation means freeing all americans from the terror of runaway living costs. all must share in the productive work of this new beginning,' and all must share in the bounty of a revived economy. with the idealism and fair play which are the core of our system and our strength, we can have a strong and prosperous america, at peace with itself and the world. so, as we begin, let us take inventory. we are a nation that has a government -- not the other way around. and this makes us special among the nations of the earth. our government has no power except that granted it by the people. it is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed. it is my intention to curb the size and influence of the federal establishment and to demand recognition of the distinction between the powers granted to the federal government and th
. also the times are tough. the economy is sluggish. international challenges put a damper on many things. the president has a lot of work to do and a lot of battles ahead with republicans. they expect it could be significantly smaller. instead of 1.8 four years ago. they lowered the crowd estimates. originally 600 to 800,000. yesterday we were infirmed organizers think maybe closer to 500 to 700. only perhaps a quarter of the size of four years ago. of those here no less enthusiasm. bill, martha. bill: history will show you the beginning of second term, sometimes you get 250, 300,000 at the high end. carl, we'll talk to you later this morning. carl cameron on the mall. martha? martha: people who are here are very enthusiastic and excited to be part of this big day. no doubt that means very tight security here in washington as well. there will be extra air and boat patrols around the city along with checkpoints and metal detectors along the parade route. 2000 police officers from 0 states are helping with security. lined up motorcycles behind us on the parade route. more than 6,000 member
, it didn't happen in one fell through to get our economy in great shape and move towards a balanced budget. it started out for three phases. started off with president bush's actions. first president bush in terms of taxation before president clinton took office in the action the president took in 94 and 97. well, we think there is a third phase here they consider country on a path that will allow us to get our debt to gdp, deficit to gdp down around 3%, which is all economists are training center greer that areas we can begin to cruise the country and as my grandfather used to say that the grace of god and goodwill of the neighbors, between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling, we may very well be able to meet the goal we set out to do, which is to have roughly $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and put us on that past. i didn't come here to talk about any of this important subjects today because as important as they all are today we have a mortgage and indie media call and that is how to do with the epidemic of gun violence in america. the one of the statist

[cheers and applause] on this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of her pace over conflict and discord. on this day we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and

to do. but he needs to get to work. and the number one problem is the economy. he's got to fix the economy. the fiscal situation has been fixed, to a large extent. the stock market's doubled. that's pretty good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st century america. his focus has to be on the economy. on the need to reduce unemployment. and frankly, i hope he can, through his own example, restore a sense of civility in the country. >> every president learns a lot. is scarred by the office. also made more wise by the office. what is the one thing you hope president obama has learned over the last four years? >> i hope he's learned that you know, no one part of the government, really, gets it all done. and so, he's got to do a better job of reaching out to members of congress, across both -- across the aisle, to the republicans. and the republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. why aren't republican leaders shouting out about all thi

"the financial times." china's economic growth has hit its slowest rate in 13 years. still the country's gdp grew by 7.8%. economists say it could have been worse. they note amid concerns of a slowdown, china's government has spurred heavy investment in inf infrastructure. >> "usa today." congress, inexperienced. 40% of lawmakers in the house have fewer than three years' experience. the lowest number since at least 1995. as a result, new members are often receiving committee as
and undermine their idealism. if we permit our economy to drift and decline, the vulnerable will suffer most. we must live up to the calling we share. civility is not a tactic or a sentiment. it is the determined choice of trust over cynicism, of community over chaos. and this commitment, if we keep it, is a way to shared accomplishment. america, at its best, is also courageous. our national courage has been clear in times of depression and war, when defending common dangers defined our common good. now we must choose if the example of our fathers and mothers will inspire us or condemn us. we must show courage in a time of blessing by confronting problems instead of passing them on to future generations. together, we will reclaim america's schools, before ignorance and apathy claim more young lives. we will reform social security and medicare, sparing our children from struggles we have the power to prevent. and we will reduce taxes, to recover the momentum of our economy and reward the effort and enterprise of working americans. we will build our defenses beyond challenge, lest weakness invite

'll turn to the economy now. a new warning about the united states and our credit rating as the debt battle kicks into high gear. congress has just weeks to increase our debt ceiling. fitch, a leading credit ratings agency, says a repeat of the 2011 debt limit crisis would spark a formal review of our country's aaa rating. that could mean a downgrade by them. now you might remember, s&p, a different agency, already downgraded our country in 2011. that was the first time in our history that that happened. the president is taking a hard-line stand, issuing a warning of his own to the gop. >> we have to pay our bills. congress has two choices here. we can act responsibly and pay america's bills. or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. jenna: republicans like congressman jason chaffetz blasting back against the president. >> i think the president was terribly irresponsible today. to say he will not talk about it because he is above it, but blame all of congress, in part c

're concerned about their economy, but iran is definitely up there front and center, and the meeting between the u.n. nuclear watch dog and iran has been pushed back by a day. it will be on february 13th, perhaps another stall tactic. will netanyahu become more aggressive toward iran and could we expect to see more unilateral decisions with respect to iran? >> i believe prime minister netanyahu is dedicated and committed to stopping iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. and time indeed is running out. we believe that by the summer it may be too late. so what we're looking at is actually the spring, maybe, june at the latest, when a decision will have to be made. we still hope that the diplomacy will play its role. we still hope that sanctions will work. but if they don't, i believe that prime minister netanyahu will make sure and will keep his word that he will not allow iran to become nuclear. he will not be willing to be the prime minister during the second holocaust of israel. he is very committed to that. but in order to do that he would need a very strong coalition, very, very strong re

the burden of a slow economy, constant uncertainty, and ever-changing government rules that chase jobs and opportunity overseas. one day to day life costs more, and jobs pay less, we do not solve the problem by delaying decisions, raise taxes, or refusing to tackle the most pressing economic challenges. you deserve better. with the swearing in of a new congress and the inauguration of president obama, this is the opportunity for a fresh start, but because government debt affects all of us, republicans will not simply provide a blank check for uncontrolled spending , a rational borrowing, and constant nickel and dime tax increases. the issues that we face today are not an impossible obstacle. they are merely the challenges of our time. we have the guidance of great leaders of the past that have faced tougher challenges than this with grace and dignity like dr. martin luther king jr., who won said the most persistent and urgent question is what are you doing for others? it is a good word for all of us , and a clarion call that should ring in our ears on his birthday weekend. regardless o

to bring about the collapse of the iranian economy or the surrender of their government. we're not saying sanctions are meaneringless. they are imposing various types of hardships on people in iran, but they are not having the kind of strategic effect that proponents of them here say that they will have, and i would say historically, there's no real example of a case where sanctions organized and instituted by the united states have led either to the overthrow of a government we didn't like or led it basically to surrender our our policy demands. we impose sanctions on iraq for more than a decade. killed more than 1 million iraqis in the process, half of them children, and the iraqi people didn't rise up to overthrow saddam. they didn't you know, change iraqi policies. it took a disastrous u.s. invasion in 2003 to do that. sanctions are not going to have the effect that people are being promised that they'll have here. >> i could talk to you both for hours. we didn't even scratch the surface of the nuclear capabilities and the allegations made against iran on that front, but hillary and f
